Yesterday, I participated in the Rise Against Hunger Philippines Million Meal Marathon event. I went to Conrad Manila’s Taft Ballroom for an afternoon of volunteering.
I prepared by wearing a hairnet and sanitizing.
I also wore a mask. All sanitation gear were provided onsite.
We were assigned to pack champorado soy and rice meal packs. They will be sent to the needy in Visayas and Mindanao.
By the time I had my gloves on, I was all set to pack food!
I rewarded myself with a cup of coffee afterwards.
I am truly honored to be part of this event. I was also there during their last meal packing marathon in 2017. In the midst of all the body shaming I have to endure, it is humbling to know that many of our brothers and sisters have to live without adequate food and nutrition. I am glad to be reminded to be thankful everyday, and to extend a helping hand whenever possible.
